Rangers Lines: Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards-Rick Nash Marian Gaborik-Derek Stepan-Ryan Callahan Chris Kreider-Brian Boyle-Taylor Pyatt Mike Rupp-Jeff Halpern-Brandon Segal Ryan McDonagh-Dan Girardi Marc Staal-Anton Stralman Michael Del Zotto-Stu Bickel Henrik Lundqvist Martin Biron Probable Scratches/Injuries:  Mike Sauer (concussion), Arron Asham (suspension), Steve Eminger (healthy), Matt Gilroy (healthy) Preview: The biggest move the Bruins made this offseason was a move that was out of their control. Tim Thomas went postal and built a 12/21/12 bunker in Colorado or something like that. That leaves the goaltending position to Tuuka Rask, who honestly is better than Thomas. Come to think of it, Thomas going insane was actually better for the Bruins than him staying, well, normal. Under Claude Julien, the Bruins have mastered the 1-2-2 and the 1-4 traps. They use this to play stifling defensive hockey, but that doesn’t mean they are without talent. Patrice Bergeron is one of the best two-way centers in the game, and Tyler Seguin is one of the best young talents. They finally have a healthy Nathan Horton as well. On defense, Zdeno Chara is the center piece that really symbolizes what the Bruins are all about: Tough, physical hockey. Just because this team plays a 1-2-2 and a 1-4 doesn’t mean they won’t punish you for taking the puck into high traffic areas. Crazy Thought: Kreider gets a hat trick in his regular season debut. Stepan gets jealous. Opposition Blog: Days of Y’Orr Tweet

The benefits of switching Gaborik to LW

Photo credit: Jim McIsaac One of the bigger stories during minicamp has been the position switch made by Marian Gaborik. Gaborik, a left-handed shot, has played the off-wing his entire career, until now. This season, Gaborik will at least start the year on the left side, with Derek Stepan as his center and Ryan Callahan as his right wing (the other top line is Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards...

Hilarious new ‘This is SportsCenter’ commercial starring Henrik Lundqvist and a Muppet

I love when NHLers get to star in “This is SportsCenter” commercials, in my opinion it doesn’t happen enough.  The commercials themselves are absolutely classic, and it’s always good to see a fresh face get a shot at starring in the commercial.  Pairing Henrik Lundqvist with Swedish Chef is absolutely outstanding and the mastermind behind this should be commended.  My...

One game a season does not make

My hair so sexy. Well, the Rangers lost last night. Not only did they lose, but they looked awful in the process. They were rusty, sluggish, sloppy, and looked like they needed another week of training camp. They took bad penalties, and missed defensive zone coverages more often than I can count. The only good thing is that Henrik Lundqvist looked to be in midseason form. But around...
